The blind followers of Donald Trump, especially those in the U.S. Senate, have allowed him to wreak havoc on the country and the Constitution over the past four years. Now, the Lincoln Project, a group of Republican strategists, are calling out those followers for their willingness to sacrifice the country for their own political gain, all in service to the most dangerous leader the country has ever had.
The @SenateGOP is willing to tear this country apart to remake America in Trump's image. Their loyalty is to power, not us.

The naked power grab of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in vowing to fill the Supreme Court seat of Ruth Bader Ginsburg within two hours of her death, and despite denying President Obama an opportunity to appoint Merrick Garland in 2016, is not helping restore the Republican’s image of strict constitutional purism and respect for the law. In fact, much of what the GOP has done under Trump has done more to hurt than help them, and they’ll be reaping the rewards of that in November.
Republican senators up for reelection in 2020 are not faring well, and the latest rounds of Trump controversies and GOP kowtowing hasn’t helped. In Maine, Susan Collins trails her competitor by more than six points. Thom Tillis of North Carolina is behind by five points in the polls, as is Arizona’s Martha McSally. Prominent names like Lindsey Graham are embroiled in tight races in areas that should not even be in contention, and states where Donald Trump won decisively in 2016 are now up for grabs. Republicans gambled on a con man, and it seems they may have lost that bet.
